This is my brother. This moment was a special one, his eyes tell you the story. I think a person’s eyes can hide and still reveal so much. His eyes here showed the fun, playful times we had as children, but also the bitter, sullen moments we somehow haven’t regretted. We think differently, but we are still one, we stick together, and one day this showed. We were riding through a forest and stopped to take a rest. He looked up and there it was – the moment. With a swift kick of the pedals, we were back on the move.
